Locked up / Die Zelle

Share:

Presented by the Prinzhorn Collection, the exhibition "Locked Up/ The Cell" consists of numerous series and individual works addressing the concept of confinement and exclusion. Photographs of prisons and psychiatric wards from the Magnum archive are exhibited together with the Collection's own paintings and drawings by inmates of such institutions, depicting their immediate environment as well as their vistas of the outside world. 

At the heart of the exhibition is a walk-in reproduction of the cell mental patient Julius Klingebiel (1904–1965) inhabited at the Psychiatric Asylum in Göttingen. Throughout his twelve years in the institution, he painted the walls of his single cell with landscapes, animals, human figures, weapons and symbols. His imagery also touched on religious, political and technical themes. During his years in the cell – from 1951 to 1963 – Klingebiel continuously re-worked his images.
